    Learn to approach the critical decisions in your life with a more seasoned, educated eye with this fascinating 24-lecture series that explores how individuals, groups, and organizations make effective decisions. The heart of this accessible series is a thorough examination of decision making at three key levels. First, you'll look at decisions made at the individual level, where, among the many things you'll learn is that intuition is more than just a gut instinct and, in fact, represents a powerful pattern recognition capability.

    What made the experience of listening to The Art of Critical Decision Making the most enjoyable?

    The topic was well researched with the author referencing several different sources/case studies to support the points being made, both positive and negative. The material was well-balanced.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of Critical Decision Making?

    Understanding why decisions fail.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Nothing in particular.


    What did you learn from The Art of Critical Decision Making that you would use in your daily life?

    Too much to mention.


    Any additional comments?

    The cheezy classical music and the clapping between chapters were very annoying. It made the author appear very needy, pathetic even. If I came across that during the preview before purchasing I would have definitely considered not buying it.

    Mark Twain once observed, "A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth can even get its boots on." His observation rings true: urban legends, conspiracy theories, and bogus public-health scares circulate effortlessly. Meanwhile, people with important ideas (business people, teachers, politicians, journalists, and others) struggle to make their ideas "stick". In this indispensable guide, we discover that sticky messages of all kinds draw their power from the same six traits.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    There's nothing new regarding the principles and concepts the writers have documented here. But the beauty about this book is that it brought together these principles and concepts in a simple framework which makes it easy for us to apply consistently. And there is value to be had in that.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Keeping ideas simple. Making them concrete.
